Ask yourself what do we get from an ever closer political union aside from free trade which countries like Ukraine, Columbia, vietnam and turkey which either have or will soon get it.
The EU is against the best long term interests of the UK in an ever globalising world, this regional protectionism in a shrinking market - one a decade or two from collapse - does nothing but restrict our hand from the ripe pickings elsewhere. On the other hand, Greece is about to default on its debts yet again and Italy, spain and portugal look like they're going that way in a decade or so too.
We get to avoid TTIP and safeguard our vital industries from frivolous privatisation and government lawsuits.
If you are educated there is no reason that the EU is not going to allow you to work there (the 4 or 5 countries you could feasibly work in to maintain standard of living you would get here), you just have to meet conditions which aren't going to be over-ambitious.
We had 48 hours of market volatility and its all calmed for now, this continued melancholy and doomsaying has no reflection on the reality whatsoever that we are no free to trade with not only Europe but the entire world, we can be far more competitive, regulate our own monetary and fiscal policy however we choose and abide by our own laws without constant interference.. we can even have the luxury of MAKING most of our own laws, what a 'luxury' that a state can actually legislate for itself.
In short, market volatility is no accurate litmus test whatsoever for the huge potential we have on our doorstep and far more shielded from the real economic apocalypse to come.
Tired of people saying Leave is clearly a stupid decision. Watch
